Pomegranate Seeds

Pomegranates are SO yummy!!  but,...oh so messy!

Here's a fabulous method for obtaining pomegranate seeds without the mess!  (Thanks, Johanne!)

1.  With a paring knife, cut the top at an angle and pop off.

2. Put whole fruit in bowl of cold water with ice.

3.  Score the pomegranate on the sides. 5 or 6 cuts all around - cut deep.

4.  Submerge in bowl of cold water and crack open along cuts.

5.  Pluck seeds out; the seeds should sink to the bottom of the bowl while the pulp and guck will float to the top.

6.  Skim off the skin, pulp, membrane, etc. and discard.

7.  Drain seeds in a colander and rinse well in cold water.

8.  Store seeds in refrigerator or you can freeze them.

These seeds don't last the day in our house! ;0)

Enjoy!
